To celebrate Earth Day, Roosevelt Park Zoo is hosting a Recycled Art Contest to raise awareness about environmental issues facing animals and people around the world. This contest is an opportunity for students, classrooms, families, facilities, and individuals to explore recycling and upcycling methods in a creative way.

How it Works:
Turn recyclable items and/or trash goods (items that would have otherwise been thrown away) into an animal inspired work of art. Submissions should be made of 100% recycled or trash goods. Glue, paint, screws, and other fastening devices are not included in the 100%.
